OK. The VIN confirms it's a Mach 1 which came from the factory with a 351 Cleveland 2V or, if it's an early 1970, it may have come with a 351 Windsor 2V. A Marti Report will specify this. It's really
weird that someone removed the Mach 1 aluminum rocker panels and filled in the holes. That's too bad because those aren't reproduced and getting a replacement set will cost over $1,000 with chrome and fasteners. Does your car have the honeycomb taillight panel? That was part of the Mach 1 package.
I don't know to which "official papers" you are referring, but the only thing that matters is a window sticker or Marti report. Anything else can be suspect. By all means, let us know what you have and we can try to figure out what's going on.
In case you're wondering if your car has extra value beyond being a Mach 1 H-Code, that would be a tough sell. Collectors and enthusiasts wouldn't know anything about "The Dearborne Special" and therefore wouldn't be willing to pay anything extra. That is, unless you were able to dupe someone and, well, that's just not cool. Unfortunately, the missing Mach 1 rocker panels lower the value.
